Free stuff Friday, yay! Here’s Toy Keyboard, a free VST/VST3/AU plugin by Sample Science. Now, this is a pretty simple plugin since there’s only one sample per sound stretched across the keyboard (but hey, it’s a toy keyboard after all) and it mimics the Yamaha PSR-78 home keyboard.
This is pretty amazing (and meta), but Porter Robinson, the Grammy nominated artist who has used Vocaloid voices in many of his exceptional tracks now actually got his OWN Yamaha Vocaloid AI bank, dubbed Po-uta (if you for some reason haven’t heard Shelter you should listen to it right away).
Listen/watch Porter Robinson’s Vocaloid bank Po-uta in action here:
Cherry Audio has released their new ”visionary flagship” synth plugin GX-80, which combines the emulation of the classic Yamaha GX-1 and Yamaha CS-80. The latter, of course, famous for being used by legends like Vangelis for the Blade Runner soundtrack, for instance.
GX-80 is not just another CS-80 emulation. GX-80 adeptly integrates the GX-1’s distinctive feature set into the CS-80 architecture; most significantly, the massive dual-layer architecture that effectively made the GX-1 the equivalent of two CS-80s and then some. The GX-1’s unique high-passed resonant pulse and bandpassed sawtooth waves, octave-up triangle wave, and filter envelope inversion are incorporated, opening up a new universe of sonic experimentation. Most notably, GX-80 includes an expert reproduction of the legendary GX-1 filter, delivering exquisite timbres that even the mighty CS-80 cannot produce.
Both the GX-1 and CS-80 cost around $50,000 back in the 70’s, this software… replicant, if you will, gonna put you back $59 at this date.
